Under the rule of Prince John while King Richard was away at war, England was in dire straits. Prince John’s cruelty set the people on edge. Taxes were raised, stocks were filled, and the people lost all hope. One man, bandit though he be, took pity upon those in need, defying the Prince, robbing from the coffers of the rich and powerful, and giving to the poor.
